Cara Delevingne, Shailene Woodley To Star As Lovers in ‘The Murderous Miss Highsmith’

Lesbian horror film

A new killer-horror genre biopic is in the works, and it will star Cara Delevingne and Shailene Woodley as lovers!

Titled ‘The Murderous Miss Highsmith’, the movie will reimagine the early life and career of author Patricia Highsmith (to be played by Woodley) before she wrote “The Talented Mr. Ripley” which itself is inspired by her doomed love affairs with two women.

According to Deadline which broke the news, the aim of the biopic is to “get inside the mind of the author,”.that is, to show her interest in violent murders. Delevingne, on the other hand, will play as one of her love interests, facing off against Noemie Merlant. This interesting mix of genres will showcase how both Highsmith’s profession and intense love life shaped her persona.

Alexandra Pechman was tapped to direct the movie, and this will be her first feature after her genre short film ‘Thumb’. Filming will begin this fall in Italy.

Highsmith is best known for her psychological thriller novels such as the Ripley novels, a five-book series, “Strangers On A Train”, and “The Price Of Salt”. She was dubbed as “the poet of apprehension” by novelist Graham Greene. She died in 1995 at the age of 74 in Switzerland.

Her biographer described her personal life as a “troubled one,” enduring depression and alcoholism. Her popularity as a writer led to her life being subject to many column inches, ranging from her literary success to her carefree bisexual, although mostly with women, affairs. 

No release date has been published for the film as of writing time.
